3139418 - Perform Foreign Currency Valuation - App times out and return back to main screen

Symptom

When executing the App Perform Foreign Currency Valuation, after 10 minutes the screen goes back into the system Home page. The execution is cancelled. 

Environment

S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the App Foreign Currency Valuation.
  2. Insert data
  3. Execution takes longer than 9 minutes
  4. The execution is aborted.

Cause

The app "Perform Foreign Currency Valuation" is not intended to process a high data volume. There is a technical time limitation of maximum 10 minutes. 

The app is executed in a browser session. This browser session is connected to the gateway which establishes a connection to the application server. After the processing is started the browser session does not send any requests to the gateway. For the gateway the connection to the browser session is "Inactive" as long as there is no communication. The gateway closes inactive connections after a certain time (usually 10 minutes). If the connection to the browser session is closed, the processing on the application server will be stopped as well. There is no possibility to change the timeout limit in the gateway.

Resolution

The Recommendation is to schedule application jobs for all update runs of Foreign Currency Valuation. There is a job template Foreign Currency Valuation available in app Schedule General Ledger Jobs. This job template can be used to schedule application jobs for Foreign Currency Valuation. There are job templates for other valuation runs as well. The app Perform Foreign Currency Valuation should be used for test runs and for the display of saved logs only.

You can save the logs for all update runs of Foreign Currency Valuation. There is a flag Save log and a field Name of Result List in the area Output/Technical Settings in app Perform Foreign Currency Valuation and in the job template. You can display every saved log in app Perform Foreign Currency Valuation via button "Log List". This display provides the same result lists as after the direct execution in the app.

The button "Log List" is available only in the App Perform Foreign Currency Valuation.

Also you can split the data selection by adding more selection parameters to avoid the timeout of Execution:
- Customer Account ranges
- Supplier Account ranges
- G/L Account ranges
